My 550 series Bolens lawnmower won't start. When I prime the carb and pull the starter cord the engine will try to start for a second or two, then stop. Oil checks out, as does the gas it is brand new used once

Poulan pro pp033 33cc. I can pump the bulb pull the starter cord. it starts for a few seconds. then shut off. then I can do the same thing again. and I pump the bulb 6 times.


Your main jet in carb is clogged and needs to be cleaned out. Unit starts with prime and then will stop when no fuel is received by engine.

I have a new 650 sears craftsman self propelled 22" lawnmower that will not start. I have gone through the prime bulb instructions, still no luck.\r\nAny ideas? Walter in Alberta Canada.


could be the priming bulb gasket between the air-filter assy. and the carb.
I have the same lawnmower and if I prime with gas from a can it will start but stop after a few seconds. When I push the bulb I can hear air leaking in this area. You can replace the gasket by removing the back half of the air-filter assembly. I am looking to buy a gasket today I let you know how it works out! Thanks Ron

The lawnmower won t start after pulling the start up cord . changed the spark plug it still won t start


try a touch of starting fluid right into the carburator by taking the air filter off. If it then starts but wont run or stay running, the reservoir below the carb should be removed to clean at and the pinhole in the intake tube above the bowl nut. This is the most common problem with lawnmower start problems, the pinhole can be unplugged with one wire from a wire brush. Be careful with the gas, at least pinch off the gas hose with a vise grips while removing the carb bowl.. Never use a droplight around gasoline.

Starter cord loose on Bolens 4.5 HP lawn mower


Need to remove the pull cord assembly. Something is amiss in there. If you don't want to attempt it, I'd take it to a shop.
